I fall like trees in a wood,
when your ax found its home in my side.
You chopped me down with one clean cut,
my branches reach out as I fall to the ground.

I will fall on you, I will fall on you

My body lay in the dark forest green,
in the shadows of all the taller trees.
But one day when all the others are gone,
I will rise to my feet and reach for the sun.

Where I long to be,
is not beneath the trees.
Where I long to be,
above all the trees.
